Club lands new
a new fishery every year has now become something of a
tradition for the VAC and we are pleased to continue this by
announcing a further stretch of the river Great Ouse.
Situated just north of Felmersham village, this attractive
stretch of river provides around 30 pegs and will no doubt
prove popular both with our competitions section as well as
the pleasure angler. Around 1,000 yards in length, the
fishery is on a long sweeping bend of the river, lined with
plantation willows with a mature tree-lined bank opposite
and is only 100 yards from the car park. There are slow,
wider lengths as well as faster runs and a good opportunity
to fish under the over- hanging trees and bushes on the far
bank. The car park is opposite the entrance and with careful
parking, you could get several vehicles in with more on
match days when all depart at the same time. Entry is by a
public footpath sign, following along side this path down to
the river. Currently the grass in the meadow is quite high
and thus it's a bit of a tussle to walk through though that
will improve when the grass it cut. The banks are quite high
in nettles at present so I suggest members take something to
clear themselves a swim. Let us know how you get on.
